This week is National Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week. President Gerald Ford authorized the very first National EMS Week in 1974 and HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital wants to recognize the “tremendous role that local EMS partners make to improve health in this region and in communities across the nation.”
HSHS Good Shepherd Emergency Department Manager Michael Queary said, “The Shelbyville area has an incredible team to county on when it comes to medical emergencies – and pandemics. Paramedics, emergency medical technicians, first responders, dispatchers, emergency nurses, physician assistants and nurse practitioners, as well as all of the fire and rescue personnel, are exceptional. Our care team at HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital knows we are blessed to be a small part of this dedicated team who work tirelessly for our family and yours.”
